About Tom

I am an English teacher working with Jersey City Public Schools and a contracted, part-time writing tutor at NJCU in the evenings.

I recently graduated from NJCU in 2016 with my BA in English with a General Teaching Certification. I have been trained to tutor and teach students in one-on-one sessions, small group instruction, and whole class teaching.

I have been working as a tutor since September 2015, and I have been working in Jersey City Public Schools since 2013.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

English

I am a certified K-12 Teacher with endorsements in English Language Arts Literacy.

ESL/ESOL

I work with ESL students at NJCU and in Jersey City Public schools. I use the code switching framework by Wheeler and Swords to build off prior mastered languages to create a better understanding of the new language. I also educated myself in speaking Japanese so I understand how difficult learning a new language can be.

Literature

I've completed a variety of classes on English literature from a diverse background.

Reading

I am completing my degree in English with Secondary Education certification from NJCU.
